Description

Broought to you by Penguin.

At the moment her mother died, Olivia Potts was baking a cake. She was trying to impress the man who would later become her husband. Meanwhile, 275 miles away, her mother was dying.  

In the grief-stricken months that followed, Olivia came home from her job as a criminal barrister miserable and tired, and baked soda bread, pizza, and chocolate banana cake. 

Even when it went badly (which was often), cooking brought her comfort. So she concocted a plan: she would begin a newer, happier life, filled with fewer magistrates and more macarons. 

She left the bar for Le Cordon Bleu, plunging headfirst into the eccentric world of patisserie. Interspersed with recipes ranging from passionfruit pavlova to her mother's shepherd's pie, this is a heartbreaking, hilarious, life-affirming memoir about dealing with grief, falling in love and learning how to bake a really, really good cake.

The perfect pandemic listen

As someone who loves The Great British Bake-Off, BBC TV series, and psychology, I found this book very satisfying. Potts write with warmth, self-deprecating humor, and sincerity about losing her mother, switching careers, and falling in love. Her expert reading of the audiobook displays the skills she learned during her many childhood speech competitions. Highly recommended!
